Pronouns take the place of other nouns. In the case of personal pronouns, they often take the place of nouns that identify persons. The pronoun highlights the difference by being formed differently, and by being placed in different spots in the sentences. Pronouns point out the differences as they change form, and vary their representational function: the pronoun is the mouse pointer of language. In this article, the author shares ideas about how to teach personal pronouns in an imaginative way. The author discusses personal pronouns within the "romantic" framework with a touch of the "philosophic"; this type of unit aims to encourage students with fairly complete literacy skills to begin forming a more abstract theory of pronouns, of grammar, and of language. The pedagogical underpinnings of the lesson, specifically the types of cognitive tools utilized and expanded therein, should also make it easier to justify the methodology to parents, students, administrators, and colleagues. The author highlights the enormous potential of humanizing the subject so that it engages students emotionally.
